Home EV Charger

Owning a home EV charging station is like having your own gas pump in your garage or driveway.

You charge your vehicle at your convenience and hit the road whenever you want.

Hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and electric vehicles are a growing force here in Michigan. They’re efficient and environmentally friendly, with many models eligible for state and federal tax credits.

But you will need to charge your vehicle. Our team at Great Dane Heating, Cooling, Electrical, & Plumbing can help by installing an electric vehicle (EV) charging station in your garage, driveway, or carport.

What’s the Difference Between Level 1 and Level 2 EV Chargers?

Your electric vehicle likely came with a 110-volt-compatible home connector kit that allows your charger to plug into a standard outlet. Want a much quicker charge? Our team can install a 240-volt, wall-mounted charger.

Fully charging your vehicle with a Level 1 charger typically takes 20 hours or more. A Level 2 charge gets the job done in 4-8 hours. Charge your EV overnight.

It’s a worthwhile investment if you don’t have convenient access to a public or workplace charger.

Tax Credits for EV Charging Stations

Installing a charging station at home offers benefits you will not get at a public station. Here are other reasons to install an electric vehicle charging port at your Clinton Township, MI, home:

EV Tax Credits
You can get financial help from the federal government to pay for your home electric vehicle charger via tax credits. Through 2032, you can claim 30 percent of the cost, up to $1,000, for installing a charging station at your home.

Convenience and Safety
There is no chance of someone unplugging your vehicle and plugging theirs in. You can plug in at night and be ready to roll by morning, a convenience you never had with a gasoline-powered vehicle. You are in control of your own charging station.

Saving Money
You know the electricity rates for your home. You can charge your vehicle during off-peak hours when electricity rates are at their lowest. Cost and charging plans can vary from public station to station. Prices may differ depending on the time of day.

Home Value
According to Zillow, homes with electric vehicle chargers sell up to 10 days faster than homes without chargers. Homes with environment-friendly features, like solar panels, electric vehicle chargers, smart thermostats, and energy-efficient appliances and lighting, can make your property more appealing to buyers.

Whether you rely on your electric vehicle for your daily work commute or weekend getaways, installing a home charging station is the right move to make! Great Dane Heating, Cooling, Electrical, & Plumbing offers flexible financing options tailored to your budget and needs. Call us today.

Upgrade Your Electrical Panel for an EV Charging Station

There’s no question that nearly all Michigan households use more electricity these days. Newer homes with 200-amp panels can typically handle an EV charger without needing an Electrical Panel upgrade.

Older or smaller homes with 100-amp panels might need an upgrade, especially if your home already has high electrical demands.

Can I leave my EV plugged in all the time?

Electric cars are designed to be plugged in for extended periods. However, topping off to a 100% charge level is not always necessary for daily use—and most manufacturers recommend keeping the charge somewhere between 30% and 80% for optimal battery health.

Clinton Township EV Charging Station Repairs

Some issues you might encounter with your EV charging station include:

• Network connectivity issues • Broken plugs
• Unresponsive screens
• Cable issues

• Charging slowly or not completely

It might be a software issue caused by a disrupted cellular signal. You might also experience a hardware issue stemming from a failing fuse, loose wire, or a tripped breaker. Hardware issues are more likely to occur if you have an unprotected outdoor charger dealing with our seasonal Michigan weather conditions.

Most electric vehicle chargers stop working if the electrical current is not properly grounded. That means there could be a grounding issue preventing your charging from operating.

You can trust our expert Great Dane electricians to uncover the issue and address it. We guarantee our work with a warranty.
